While shooting for the horror thriller, the director realised that he needed a pianist. His daughter, who was on the sets assisting him, was the perfect fit.
Explains Vikram, “ There’s a scene in the movie where the lead actress ( Tia Bajpai) is attending a piano class. I needed a pianist and that’s when my daughter came to mind.” Krishna is a Class XI student at the Ryan Global School. The 16- year- old is obviously very excited to be directed by her father in her debut film.
Prefers acting A sixth- grade pianist, Krishna has been learning the instrument for eight years now. The youngster harbours acting aspirations. “ When she began assisting me during 1920, she told me she was interested in direction. But she was fooling me, I know she prefers acting first.” For the past three years, Vikram has been spotted with his daughter ( from his ex- wife Aditi) at various B- Town events. In fact, all his story ideas and scripts are narrated to his daughter. Bhatt feels he get instant reactions through her expressions and accordingly works on the script.
Vikram was 14 when he started with Mukul Anand’s Kanoon Kya Karega in 1984. Krishna seems to be following suit at 16.
